Does it really matter all that much what Meghan Markle is up to or what other celebrities are saying about her and her many failures? No, probably not. But it is entertaining, particularly after the damage she dealt to the royal family. Much like the never-ending Brittney Griner saga, the schadenfreude is a bit too good to pass up.
That’s particularly true given the briefly former Duchess of Sussex’s business blunders, which are piling up at a rapid rate. Take the Netflix show she had that got canceled. That should have been a hit and helped refill her purse and Harry’s bank account.
But it wasn’t. “Pearl,” the woke, animated show got canceled because Netflix decided it needed to cut costs. Were Meghan able to better use her popularity and channel it into excitement for the show, particularly among Americans, that probably wouldn’t have happened. But she couldn’t. And so the former Duchess lost out on a lucrative opportunity.
And so, “Real Housewives of New York” star Bethenny Frankel just tore into Meghan in a hilarious TikTok, blasting the former Duchess for her business blunders and saying that she’s quite a bad businesswoman. Watch that here:
Bethenny Frankel is RIPPING Meghan and Harry a new one! She calls Harry #Fredo from The Godfather and Meghan a terrible business person. “The tide has turned.” I think Bethenny is FREE to speak now without losing business deals again. 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽 https://t.co/dbTwlQcVjm pic.twitter.com/rt2xAkZYjH

As you can hear in the video, Frankel, discussing her view of Meghan and describing her many shortcomings, particularly in the business realm, said:
“She is a terrible, terrible businessperson, strategist, she’s playing checkers, not chess, because she is overplaying her hand, and she is painting herself into a corner, becoming a woman without a country.”
Continuing, Frankel added “She got out of something that was a terrible situation for her, and she just, she really is f**king it up.”
Now, was being a duchess really “a terrible situation for her”? No, probably not. In fact, being a princess is the dream of most girls. But, regardless, the second half of that sentence, the bit about Meghan really “f***ing it up,” now that’s almost certainly true.
And Frankel wasn’t done. Continuing, she noted other perceived flaws of Meghan, namely how polarizing she is. Speaking on those additional flaws, Frankel said:
“She’s a polarizing person. It may not be the message, it’s the messenger; the way things are being messaged.
“And she is just really not a good business strategist. She is not listening to smart people.
“Unfortunately, she is not married to someone who can help her navigate this, because it doesn’t seem like she listens to him, and he may not even have any input. He could be Fredo or Sonny from The Godfather — because he, in his own life, has made some bad choices. It’s not a great combination.”
She’s right in that Harry doesn’t seem like the brightest or most thoughtful…particularly since he married Meghan. And Meghan is obviously polarizing. Recent examples of that polarizing attitude come from Breitbart, which reported that:
Last week, Markle claimed on her new Archetypes podcast that people only started treating her “like a black woman” after she started dating Prince Harry.
Moreover, in a recent interview with The Cut, the Duchess also tacitly threatened to “say anything” about her time in the U.K. after she and Prince Harry left the Royal Family for a new life in the United States.
